It’s time to upgrade your arches. Eyebrows are no longer waxed to perfection – they are threaded. If you don’t know what this means, then it’s time to listen up.

Faster and more precise than any other form of hair removal, threading is the latest way of achieving the perfect set of brows. This ancient form of hair removal has been used throughout the Middle East and India for years and has become a highly sought after brow service in all western countries, mainly due to the fact that the super quick process involves no waxes, lotions or chemicals and is virtually pain free.

So how does it work?
A long piece of antibacterial fine cotton thread is pulled along unwanted hair in a twisting motion (to trap hair in a mini lasso), lifting hair right out of the follicle. It’s simple, super quick and seriously kind to the bank balance!

Best thing about it?
A threaded brow can stay in perfectly groomed shape for up to six weeks…we love that!

The cons?
Finding a professional and highly skilled threading specialist is as difficult as sourcing an efficient and trustworthy cleaning lady. Lucky for you – we’ve done the legwork for you. Here are two of the best threading specialist you will find…
